Today’s PSPs need to provide a higher volume of a wider variety of print applications than ever before. Adding to the demand for speed and versatility is the need to produce graphics in smaller facilities, with reduced staff, and lower cost of ownership. Epson’s new lines of SureColor T- and P-Series were designed specifically to help PSPs print more for less and prove that big things come in small packages.

 

Production-Class Line of SureColor T-Series for CAD and Graphics Applications

“In today’s production environments, we’ve seen a growing need for solutions that not only deliver fast speeds and functionality, but fit seamlessly into any shop or office, even if space is limited,” said Jacob Hardin, Product Manager for Epson America’s Professional Imaging group. “The T-Series line of printers is a focus for Epson with 13 models in the line already. The new additions deliver production-class performance with a small footprint, and come equipped with powerful software to meet the needs of our customers. Built on decades of technology innovation, Epson designed the new SureColor T-Series production solutions to help today’s professionals improve workflows and streamline project delivery.”
